yes turbo's have a different torque curve vs say a SC....but I will bet you a bottle of Crown Royal that the drives do not last any considerable time past.....say 30-50 hours...seem fair enough..


the problem with all of this no one will ever find out once failure occurs...no one will want to admit after all the coin that they just spent for this project.

The #8 Arnesons are lighter and a hell of a lot tougher,They have a longer one as well, also You are giving up a lot of power in gear loss as well.

I thought we'd be seeing great pics, & hearing about the huge numbers this boat is producing by now too if it's been running as expected?
